a rucksack & mk's first sentence

today i finished a nice rucksack from this pattern:
i really like the pattern and have made the preschool size 3 times.

here are two i've made for ds and dd a few years ago: ds's is the red and blue one, with some 1940s novelty print on it. dd's has fairies, similar to the flower fairies by mary cicily baker (?). i just love novelty prints.

this is a great pattern: fast, with just enough details to keep it interesting.

and here is the one i completed today:

the close up shows the detail of the fabric, all wwII slogans, i presume. my favorite: "our boys need sox. knit your bit".

as an aside, yesterday mk uttered her first sentence: "ah got shoosh." (i got shoes.) right after that came "ah got baby." she is the first of my kids that absolutely loves dolls. she feeds them, hugs them, nurses them. it is too cute!

Awesome bags!!!! Have you knit YOUR bit? (You'll have to knit mine too, because I sure can't!)

My 20-mo DS is still working on nouns, but I *swear* he says "I want some"!
